“charming”
Reviewed 7 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

A charming one bedroom cottage with excellent decor throughout. The property is immaculate with great inclusion. Located close to shops, restaurants and takeway outlets. Very reasonably priced and offers great value. The owner, Jenny, is very easy to deal with and I give this property 10/10 rating.

“Wonderful getaway, private, peaceful, well appointed and beautifully presented.”
Reviewed 8 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Valley View Cottage is just perfect for one or two people; compact but beautifully laid out, with everything you need to make it an enjoyable stay. The kitchen is well equipped, the dinning/lounge has lovely views and good sun, and I loved the location. The owners are very helpful (with the best driving directions I've ever seen), I thoroughly recommend this cottage.

“How green was our valley”

We thought of this as 'home' rather than a holiday house. Ideally located close to the City, surrounded by greenery, this provides quiet accommodation and an elevated view of its surroundings. It is comfortably furnished, spotlessly clean, and the owners have thoughtfully stocked the larder with a lot of provisions.

It has wifi, a phone for local calls. What more could holiday makers ask for?

“Lovely comfortable and indeed charming cottage”

Valley View is the perfect getaway from the city's hustle and bustle, yet is close enough to the city (15 mins drive to the museum and city centre, 5-7mins drive to the closest supermarket and cafes). The cottage is clean, spacious, very tastefully decorated and very very comfortable. The host Jenny keeps the larder very well stocked with anything you could possibly need.
Our stay was very comfortable and I would highly recommend this property to anyone who visits Christchurch. You definitely need a car to drive to the location, though I believe there is some public transport available nearby.
Everything, right from the heating to the hot plates and stoves, all equipment (including the boom box in the living room) worked perfectly well and there is nothing more we could have asked for. Totally kicked off our honeymoon on the right note! Thank you Jenny!

“Excellent on all counts”
Reviewed 24 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

A delightful and private setting that lived up to all our expectations. The property was well equipped and there were lots of supplies when we arrived too. Well decorated and the well signposted throughout. We are intending to stay again. Helpful but unobtrusive owners.
